of Spiritual Exercises, Using Sound and Shared
The voice is nature's most perfect instrument;
other instruments have been trying to replicate
its magnetism since the dawn of time. Voices
reveal things about us before we realize them
ourselveslike emotions or moodand
voices can clue us in to our physical and emotional
realities. Our voices are our barometers: they
measure the atmospheric pressure of our emotions.
Voices can betray energy levelpicture
a child before bed, hoarsely crying, 'Im
NOT tired! Our voices disclose attitude:
honest or dishonest, sincere or insincere. How
often are the words 'Oh, Id love
to,' belied by the feeling in the voice
('No way in hell!'). When we dream
about our greatest dreams or suffer our biggest
hurts, they are present in our voices.
Join us for a day of
singing, deep listening, and seriously fun prayer.
Knowing yourself can put you on the fast track
to a healthy inner life. Learn how your voice
lives in your body, and how to use it to generate
health and healing. Listen to yourself for a
change. The voice youve been given is
a part of your gift to the world, and is unique
in the universe.

everybody. A multifaith experience. If you can
